The logo for the original Final Fantasy shows the title in a simple light blue font with semi-transparent characters. It was the only time the title was entirely in katakana, rather than primarily English letters with a kana subtitle. The English logo is done in a custom font, slightly bolded, in red.
The logo of the Final Fantasy Origins and Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls re-releases features a Yoshitaka Amano drawing of The Emperor in pink. The logo was again redesigned for the 20th Anniversary PSP release, still featuring the Emperor. This logo is also used for the mobile releases.
The logo for Final Fantasy III features the title in an italic orange font, and three crystal columns in the background. The letters are styled almost exactly like the previous game, only this time they are all-gold. The logo of the Nintendo DS re-release features a Yoshitaka Amano drawing of an unnamed Warrior of Light holding two swords in greens and blues. In Dissidia Final Fantasy, the Onion Knight strikes this pose during the Ninjutsu version of his EX Burst. This logo has been used for all following versions of Final Fantasy III.
The logo of Final Fantasy IV features a Yoshitaka Amano drawing of Kain Highwind in purple, posing in a shape of number four in Arabic numeral. The color of the text matches the color of the drawing. The logo marks several things: it adopts what would become the "standard" design of the title logo, with the title in English and a katakana subscript and incorporating a piece of Amano artwork between or near (in this case, between) the "Final" and "Fantasy."
The logo of Final Fantasy V features a Yoshitaka Amano drawing of a wind drake in purple and light blue. The text is a dark blue and the "V" strays from the traditional font style.
The logo of Final Fantasy VI features a Yoshitaka Amano drawing of Terra Branford atop a Magitek Armor, depicting an event when she was in the thrall of the Gestahlian Empire. The armor and its rider are in black and red, while the text is black, from here on becoming standard for the series. Amano considers the logo memorable at the time as Terra was one of the first female main characters in the series and the logo is just the silhouette without actual faces and lines; Amano describes early logos in the series as more simplistic that gradually became more illustration-like.
The logo of Final Fantasy VII features Meteor in varying shades of turquoise. The smaller stone may be a piece of Materia. The green and blue of the logo set the theme for the color tone for the rest of the game as well, reflected in the Mako energy and Lifestream that play crucial roles in the story. Amano has described creating the Final Fantasy VII logo as a challenge. He drew many variations and concepts around the Meteor motif, and in the end wasn't sure if it was good and thus let the developers choose the final version.
The logo of Final Fantasy VIII features a red and orange drawing of Squall embracing Rinoa. The two assume the pose in-game during a scene at Sorceress Memorial, which is alluded to in the opening cinematic. The team knew that the Rinoa and Squall scene was going to be a a big moment in the game, so they asked Yoshitaka Amano to draw this for the logo. The red to yellow gradient reflects the sunset in the background of the moment Rinoa is falling to Squall's arms in the opening cinematic.
The logo of Final Fantasy IX features the Crystal from which all life originates in shades of gold. The game number matches the crystal's color.
The logo of Final Fantasy X features Yuna performing a sending at the Kilika Port in a variety of vibrant shades, reminiscent of the iridescence of pyreflies also crucial for the scene the logo depicts. It is the first to officially bear Amano's signature, visible in the bottom-right corner. Like Final Fantasy V, the "X" strays from the traditional font style.
